Spend Chinese New Year 2017 With Yuan Thong Temple Bacolod

Yuan Thong Temple Bacolod

I don’t know about you but I am tired of spending Chinese New Year at Lacson Street. A little disclosure, I’m not Chinese, nor do I dislike our tourism street or strip, or whatever you call it. It’s really effective when you want to have the best time with your friends drinking, eating, and walking. But, as a mom, what I am after is a cultural experience for myself and my entire family. That’s why, last year, we went to the Yuan Thong Temple Bacolod. I actually did not know that they were open, but the gates were and people were coming in, so we did too.

I’m not sure how many years the temple has been opening its gates to the public, but I am glad they did. This year, they’re opening their gates again this January 27 until Feb 2. If you haven’t been inside the temple yet, this your chance.
